This was the most expensive meal I had in Lisbon, coming in at less than €100 for two people - starters, mains, desert, wine...and the service and food was excellent. Not much else around the restaurant, but they organised a taxi for us after the meal. Well worth the trip.

Friendly staff, nice venue, and delicious food: these are all the ingredients that are needed for a perfect lunch with friends. We skipped the appetizers for a proper tête-à-tête with our octopus and pork loin main dishes. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, suggesting us all the way through our meal. Don't miss the chocolate soup dessert!

We visited this restaurant to celebrate 2 "big" birthdays and the owners coud not have been more helpful. We were greeted with a glass of prosecco and shown the utmost attention throughout the evening. Well cooked, good value food with a different take on traditional portugese. My wife arranged for special birthday cakes "remotely" by email which made a great... More

Ivan and his team have a great set up. Glass of fizz on arrival, attentive staff and most importantly brilliant food. Ceviche of mackerel and smoked duck were delicious and beautifully presented. Mains of prawn risotto, Iberian black boar with black beans and octopus were fabulous followed by a huge sharing dessert. Delicious alvarinho and port. To cap it all... More

I had this restaurant under my eye for some time and finally we decided to have a dinner in it. It was easy to find a same day table. Located in Lapa, not always easy to go around, we arrived there. The mood is very calm and cosy and we felt always with the proper attention. Maybe we did not... More

This is a delightfully quirky setting in which to eat, and the food and wine are very good. I had the best salt cod dish I've ever eaten here. Portions just a bit on the small side, but I found that they were enough. The collapse of the pound Sterling makes everything just a little less good value than before... More

I was very impressed with this place. Firstly, I love how it's a house converted into a restaurant. Secondly, was greeted by very friendly staff (perhaps the owners as well). I was offered Champagne (Wow) as we head to our table. I was in awe looking around at all the couches and typewriters and books throughout. The dining area was... More
